      Increase Power; Improve Throttle Response. If your 5.0L Mustang is still running the stock throttle body, you're choking your performance Pony where it matters most. Unlike the restrictive factory throttle body, a free-flowing BBK Power Plus throttle body will let your engine breathe easier for an increase in power and improved throttle response.

      CNC Machined Aluminum.
      BBK throttle bodies are cast from high quality, lightweight 356 aluminum alloy that is finished using CNC machining to ensure a precision fit. They feature double-sealed bearings, o-ringed throttle shafts, and precision die-stamped linkages to ensure a long life and maximum performance for your Pony.

      Bolt-On Installation. The BBK Throttle Body is designed for a straightforward installation and includes all necessary hardware. It is designed to reuse the factory throttle body gasket for an easy installation.

      CARB Certified. This BBK throttle body is  CARB certified (CARB EO Number: D-245-15) and 50 state legal.

      This BBK 65mm Throttle Body is designed for use on 1986 to 1993 Mustangs equipped with the 5.0L EFI engine, including the LX 5.0, GT and SVT Cobra models. Technical Note. This EGR Spacer not included, sold separately.

        exactly as advertised

        Great addition to my fox body. Just what the 5.0 needed to free up more power. Looks great, super easy to install.... You must order the gasket set with it!!

        4 1988 GT - ThomasF Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour


        Throttle body is great. Looks good, functionality is top notch. The issue is the gasket kit that comes with the part is for the smaller stock throttle body and does not fit with this larger size. You must buy either buy the expensive gasket kit that AM sells or get the part at the local parts store. Also, the gasket that comes with the kit does not fit perfect, but you must make sure it is on correct or you risk pouring coolant into the motor. I would give this 5 stars except for this.

        5 1992 Other - Spazmacholi Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        super easy upgrade

        Even for someone with limited mechanical experience, a new throttle body (and matching EGR plate) is one of the easiest bolt-ons you can do to a 5.0. One thing that helped me was having a Dremel available to clean the rust off of the studs that the TB bolts on to. One other caution, don't lean on anything that is plastic under the hood, if you are working on an older 'Stang. My '92 is in pretty mint condition, but 20-year-old plastic (vacuum lines, fittings, etc.) is BRITTLE! Throttle response is much improved over the sticky factory item.

      So it's "not legal for use in emissions restrictive states." Yet on the technical notes it's stating that it "is CARB certified and 50 states legal. There's a contradiction in the two statements. So which is it? California is the strictest state on vehicle emission, so just on the first statement it means that it shouldn't be emissions compliant in California. However, being CARB certified means that it is California compliant. Please clarify for those people in California who would like to know.

      • This BBK Performance 65mm Power Plus Throttle Body is Certified 50 State Smog Legal By The California Air Resource Board under CARB EO Number: D-245-13. We apologize for the confusion and we will have this corrected.

      Will this bolt up to a GT40 intake?

      • The BBK 65mm Throttle Body is designed to work with the stock intake manifold. We cannot guarantee that it will be a direct bolt on with a GT40 manifold.
